Chicago, Illinois based packaging manufacturer, Kodiak LLC, announced its investment in a four-color Kolbus Hycorr 135-inch rotary die cutter. The machine is currently being installed and is planned to start up later this month.

The Kolbus Hycorr 135-inch rotary die cutter is a maintenance friendly machine that will help increase Kodiak’s production capabilities and improve overall efficiency in the process of corrugated converting.

With its vacuum transfer technology, the Hycorr delivers registration and color dependability. Other features include a quick setup, easy operation and productivity; durably built construction with automation capabilities designed to work for short and long run work in addition to a slitter/slotter section.

“We are excited to add the Kolbus Hycorr 135″ rotary die cutter and anticipate that our customers will be impressed with its capabilities,” a Kodiak spokesperson said. 

“This machine will enable us to expand our offerings and provide our customers with even greater flexibility and customization options for their packaging needs.”
